|Other Accession||P50398, P50396, Q8HXX7, P21856, NP_001484.1|
|Other Names||Rab GDP dissociation inhibitor alpha, Rab GDI alpha, Guanosine diphosphate dissociation inhibitor 1, GDI-1, Oligophrenin-2, Protein XAP-4, GDI1, GDIL, OPHN2, RABGDIA, XAP4|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 430-443 of HUMAN GDI1|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GDIL, OPHN2, RABGDIA, XAP4|
|Function||Regulates the GDP/GTP exchange reaction of most Rab proteins by inhibiting the dissociation of GDP from them, and the subsequent binding of GTP to them. Promotes the dissociation of GDP-bound Rab proteins from the membrane and inhibits their activation. Promotes the dissociation of RAB1A, RAB3A, RAB5A and RAB10 from membranes.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network|
|Tissue Location||Brain; predominant in neural and sensory tissues.|

GDP dissociation inhibitors are proteins that regulate the GDP-GTP exchange reaction of members of the rab family, small GTP-binding proteins of the ras superfamily, that are involved in vesicular trafficking of molecules between cellular organelles. GDIs slow the rate of dissociation of GDP from rab proteins and release GDP from membrane-bound rabs. GDI1 is expressed primarily in neural and sensory tissues. Mutations in GDI1 have been linked to X-linked nonspecific mental retardation.
